So as the man in England I try to supply. Problem is so much of our TV heritage was thoughtlessly trashed.

I have a friend who is "Mr British comedy" (he gave me the "A show called Fred" episode) and he probably has loads more stuff for uploading. Trouble is, He's in New Zealand for the next 6 weeks. I'll keep my eye out for stuff to upload in the meantime.

Still, "The Buccaneers" is good fun and next January you can have the rest of "The Invisible Man" and "Quatermass & the Pit" so there's stuff to look forward to.

Fact: The BBC still junks TV programs to this day, though it's mainly cooking shows and game shows now. Then again, cooking shows and game shows are better than some of the politically correct 2000's garbage they have not only preserved but released on DVD.

If you're taking requests, I'm still hoping for episodes of Before Your Very Eyes, 1953-58, Arthur Askey's comedy series. Everyone seems to know about it, but no one seems to have any. Not even for sale. Sigh.

I haven't got this show (comedy isn't really my 'thing') but when he gets back I'll ask my man if he has any or if he can point me in the right direction to locate some.

Many thanks. I'd be most grateful. I never realized how hard people have to work to preserve older British stuff until I started looking for it. Made a lot of new friends, though.

Yes Please. Anything british would be great. My new all time favorite comedy series ( for this week anyway) is " Only Fools And Horses". I have been watching these all week. ( no its not pd before anyone asks but if you get a chance watch a few)

I'm not a fan. We get Only Fools and Horses on constant repeat in this country. I watched it when it was originally made and it was really funny but, like 'Fawlty Towers' it has been repeated so often that I'm just sick of it. But if anyone hasn't seen it, they should!

Yeah, I bet its like Gilligans Island here. Seen them all so many times it isnt worth watching anymore. But I have never seen these anywhere on American TV and I just love them. Another Guilty Pleasure is "My Hero". Ok I know its a stupid show but for some strange reason I really like it. Since I know nothing about either show I am asumming that Only Fools and Horses was late 70's early 80's? My Hero 90's?

Only Fools and Horses was more like 1981-1991 with 'specials' (up to 2003) proving the law of diminishing returns and My Hero was 2000 to 2006.
I enjoyed "My Hero" too, though I didn't see any of the last series (which didn't feature Ardal O'Hanlon)
